At Omega Recovery’s Treatment Program in Austin,TX
Dr. Kardaras and our clinical team have created a new, better, more effective way for people to not only recover, but to stay recovered. Traditional treatment programs put the struggling individual in an artificial treatment bubble where it’s relatively easy to feel good, but inevitably when that client leaves treatment, they are unprepared to deal with the stress of everyday life. At Omega Recovery’s treatment program, our clients receive 30 hrs of clinical treatment while living in a large, beautiful, secure home right in the community! They spend 5 days a week working with some of the best therapists in Austin, attend life skills groups, receive peer recovery coaching, and personal fitness training all in a secure setting.
In this “community integration” model, the clients get to experience life–shopping in the supermarket, going on a barbeque, going to a doctor’s appointment, going on a job interview–all with staff supervision, and clinical staff that can help them process any and all the feelings and emotions that can so often arise in early recovery. The success rates at traditional rehabs are so low because they don’t adequately prepare a client for real life. At Omega Recovery, our clients are life-tested and battle ready to launch into their new happy and healthy lives.
Omega Recovery’s Treatment Program in Austin, TX has two key components: complete clinical programming and supervised housing support.
Clients are transported to clinical programming every weekday to participate in a vast array of treatment modalities that have been proven to be effective in treating substance abuse and mental health issues. During a typical week in programming clients will participate in motivational interviewing(MI), dialectical behavioral therapy(DBT), mindfulness meditation, relapse prevention, breathwork, and psychodrama. They will also have opportunities to participate in body movement therapies such as yoga, karate, and Qi Gong. Clients struggling with trauma will have the option to participate in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing(EMDR) facilitated by licensed, trained clinicians. Omega Recovery also utilizes the beautiful landscapes and parks of Austin, Texas for nature immersion groups and therapeutic excursions, such as rock climbing, ropes courses, kayaking, and hiking. Afternoons are spent at the Townlake YMCA participating in Active Recovery Coaching. Additionally, all treatment program clients will be able to receive psychiatric support from Omega’s medical director, Dr. Leon, and his team.
Omega Recovery’s Treatment Program is Supported 24/7
The housing component of Omega Recovery’s Treatment Program in Austin, TX is supported by a 24/7 staffed living environment. The living environments are gender specific, meaning men and women are housed separately. Clients will have the opportunity to learn or relearn how to perform everyday tasks such as making dinner, doing chores, financial planning, and preparing for job interviews. They will be a part of a tight knit community and will be encouraged to offer support to their housemates along their journey. They will be transported every evening to a peer based recovery meeting in the community such as 12 step meetings, SMART recovery, or refuge recovery. Any client struggling with mental health issues will have the opportunity to participate in some alternative recovery programs and will not be required to identify as an addict or alcoholic.
